For all the collector's that are interested, Queen's First  EP that was released in the USA only on CD for Record Store Day on April 18th is now available on import (Hollywood D000383302).
It is a black 5" disc with grooves on the picture side (like a vinyl record) and a purple label. It carries a single sided original UK 7" sleeve replica in the front of a thick plastic jewel case with the reverse cover replicated for the back sleeve. It is sealed and has a Record Store Day sticker on the front cover. Track versions are as the original 7" vinyl.
Worth getting your hands on.

I don't get keeping stuff sealed, unless you intend to sell it in the future or it's a duplicate.  Haven't got mine yet.  Hope it comes today. :-)

The disc is awesome because it actually feels like the record.

I still haven't opened mine, and like I think I said, I never will. I will however buy more and open one of them just to see and feel the disc as it looks damn neat.

Really beautiful CD! Do you know any online shop to buy it? (other than e-bay, there are a lot but quite expensive I think) Thanks.


After a long time, collecting again!

I think eBay is your best bet, unless you can find a good music store to buy it from. (Don't be ashamed to be out in public buying a Queen product!) ;-)

Any idea what the production run is going to be on these?

Will it be as valuable as my Atari 2600 E.T. cartridge?  err....
